I downloaded standard but I have RPP deductions so I need another T1, probably a General T1? I also completed the standard so can I transfer the data to a General T1?

I purchased the "standard" by accident and entered the data.  I then realized I could not enter my "past service pension plan" carry forward" (RPP).  Do I have to buy another form from you and if so how?  Also can I transfer the data I entered on the standard to the new form? 


Your Past Service Pension Plan contributions and carry forwards can be entered in the RRSP Profile section of the Standard TurboTax Download by following these steps:

Go to 1. RRSP's > 2. RRSP Profile > 3. Check the box next to "Claim for undeducted contributions made to a Registered Pension Plan (RPP) or have contributions for past services.

You can then continue through and complete your entries. 

Note that CRA has special rules in place in regards to Carry Forwards of RPP Past Service Contributions and suggest you contact them or consult Guide T4040, found in the link below.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
